"I eagerly look forward to contributing to an already outstanding club history and fulfil my ambitions as an English cricketer in the second phase of my career."By signing with Surrey, Worrall will give up his role as a local player for South Australia."I'd like to welcome Dan to Surrey CCC. He is a high-quality bowler with a wealth of experience in Sheffield Shield, Big Bash and County cricket to draw on," Surrey director of cricket Alec Stewart said. "With no Rikki Clarke [retiring at the end of this season] or Jade Dernbach [leaving the club after 19 seasons with them] with us next year, the need to add to our pool of fast bowling options to play for the Club over the course of our punishing six-month season was crucial and Dan will add significant experience and expertise to the group we already have in place."Worrall's stint in international cricket wasn't too successful, as he picked up just one wicket in those three ODIs - one against Ireland and two against South Africa - but has 222 wickets from 58 first-class matches as well as 41 List A wickets from 35 games and 40 wickets from 52 T20s. He "will add further depth to Surrey's fast bowling unit, representing the Club in all competitions," the statement said.Overall, in two stints with Gloucestershire - in 2018 and now - Worrall has picked up 53 wickets at an average of 22.53.Daniel WorrallSurreyAustraliaEngland
